Notes

Close to the track or path that runs along the spine of the island. Dickson recorded it in 1899: “St. Andrew’s Well, beside the Altar Stones, contains the best water on the May and is entirely used for domestic purposes. This spring frequently dries up during the summer months and, in these circumstances, the islanders obtain a supply from Crail.” (Emeralds Chased in Gold).
